"Of course the usual if you're..." Houses of Parliament - Palace of Westminster Tip by Teilani

Of course the usual if you're in London for the first time: The Tower, Buckingham Palace and so on.
If you really want to see something special try to attend to the meetings of the Houses of Parliament. You can enter at a special Visitors Gate (opposite the Westminster Abbey's Garden) from 2 pm on. But the queues are immense! But most of the time both Houses sit late you can therefore also try it at around 7 or 8 pm. Then there won't be any queues.
And do take a trip with a boat from Westminster to Greenwich! Greenwich is lovely and has a nice market.
Or take a guided tour in The Globe (not far from Blackfriars Station across the bridge) or even hunt for a ticket. It's really worth it!
The Houses of Parliament are so impressing. Especially the House of Lords. All this luxury you wouldn't believe it until you've seen it.

Address: Parliament Square, SW1, Westminster, London SW1A 0AA
Directions: Nearest Tube, Westminster. Near Broad Sanctuary.
